TyrannicalDuck, Macross, Cloud_Ratha and I are from different walks of life. T-Duck won’t let a drop of alcohol touch his lips and I’m overly enamoured with bacon. Macross is in lust with his new plasma TV and Cloud_Ratha is, well, from Durban. If there is one thing we have in common, aside from being bipeds, it’s the love of gaming. It’s a passion shared by thousands of like-minded gamers across the world…I was going somewhere with this wasn’t I? Oh yes, it ties in with another fondness of ours – that of minimal poster design. It’s become quite a trend recently and even though we’ve seen a good selection of bare-bones movie and TV posters, it seems none of that love has been directed at gaming. Perhaps we haven’t been looking out for it but our Googlefu is strong tonight.

We’ve compiled a selection of their minimalist posters after the jump. Have a look.
